Welcome to Robins!
In the spring term we worked on It’s Shocking and Castles. The first theme about electricity allowed the children to experiment with wires, bulbs and buzzers to find out which circuits worked.
The Castles theme the children really enjoyed. After learning about the different parts of a castle, they worked together and built their own.
They also used fruit to make a castle picture!
At the end of the term the children worked on British Sport. This was as part of our British values work at Oaklands. The children had a cricket coach come into school for most of the term and Mrs Jayes’ son came into school to show his cricket gear and showed us how to bowl.
This term Robins class are working on Super Humans until half term then Hooray for the holidays in the second half term.
We have started our theme this term looking at skeletons and role playing hospitals.
We aim to go on several visits for the topics this term. Some classes including Robins are going to Richard Attenborough Centre to look at an exhibition there which will give the children a sensory experience and allow them to talk about their feelings and impressions of what they have seen as well as following up the work with artwork linked to the exhibition.
For our theme of The holidays we intend to visit Twin Lakes and venues in town as part of ‘being a visitor’ or holiday maker.
